San Antonio, TX, January 10, 2011 – With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, many singles are turning to the internet to find hope, love and romance! “Love seekers should use caution when searching for their true love online, because you never know who you will attract! Sex offenders are also searching for a lonely desperate heart, but not for love, but for their next victim. This is the time of year when Sweetheart scams increase. ” states Greg Sanchez, a Police Officer and co-founder of bConcerned.com; a free dating safety tool that confirms your safe return home from after a date.
According to bConcerned.com, here are a few dating safety tips you should follow;
• Never use a personal or work email, create a free email account with Yahoo, Gmail or AOL
• Always meet in a public place, if they want to meet discreetly; refuse to go
• Never send money to the person, financial scams increase during this time of year
• Trust your instincts, if something does not feel right; you don’t have to follow through
• Ask a lot of questions about the person, ex. where they work, their education, what they drive
Although it is easy and common to get caught up in the excitement, the mystery, and the infatuation of a potential new sweetheart, bConcerned.com reminds you that your safety should never be compromised. Greg and co-founder Marcello Saldana found that there are all kinds of internet dating sites, but there were almost no safe guards for the individuals who use them. As a result of their experience and the lack of a reliable safety tool, they created a notification system into a dating safety website that is now called bConcerned.com. “The website is very user friendly and the registration process is quick and simple. After registering and completing your profile, the member than adds an Alert Contact, and schedules a date and return time. The member has eight hours after their scheduled return time to logon and confirm their safe return home. If the member fails to confirm their safe return, bConcerned.com will notify their Alert Contact.”, states Marcello.
Co-founders Greg Sanchez and Marcello Saldana have 25 years of combined experience in the law enforcement and legal field. "Our mission is to bring safety awareness to the dating community. We believe your safety is always our priority, by providing a dating safety website, with cutting technology, unparalleled service and our exceptional insight to safety, you can rest assured knowing that your safe return is being monitored.
